EVERY CONCEIVABLE BEACH ACTIVITY IN KONA, HAWAII

Kealakekua Bay Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, Studio + Other (See Description), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

Come enjoy this studio in our historic house (Carol's House) located literally across the street from Kealakekua Bay. Kealakekua, which means 'pathway of the gods', is the location where Captain James T. Cook first made contact with the native Hawaiians in 1778. Accounts of this historical time include a monument and actual crater in the side of the cliff created by Cook's cannonballs. You may kayak about one mile across the bay to the monument and view the craters on your way.

Today, Kealakekua Bay is a pristine wildlife sanctuary which boast dolphins, turtles, the occasional whale, and a multitude of tropical fish. It is considered to be one of the best snorkeling areas in the world. Local kayak, scuba and snorkel gear rentals.

4 miles to Pu'uhonua O Honaunau National Park, also known as the ancient City of Refuge. 'Two step' is another fantastic snorkeling spot nearby.

Groceries, restaurants, galleries etc within 5 to 10 miles.

It is 10 miles to Keauhou, where you can enjoy tennis, golfing, shopping, restaurants, and another 5 miles to Kailua-Kona. Take a day trip and enjoy Volcano National Park or the astronomy center on Mauna Kea (elev. 13,796)

All modern amenities are included. Family friendly!

The studio is small but very nice to stay in. The local people are great, take time to get to know your neighbors, they will help you out. The fish and clear water is outstanding , the best snorkeling any where in Hawaii. Fun watching all the birds in the yard too. Will stay again love the house and yard.

Great location for exploring the Kona coast

  • 4 of 5
The studio was very clean with all the amenities you need. We went to two step for some amazing snorkeling! Be sure to have snorkel gear before you make the drive from the main highway down the hill to the studio. The studio is in a great location, literally across the street from the bay, so you can do lots around the area as described in the listing.

Very nice place with every amenity in a special location

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I loved staying at Carol's place. We wished we could have stayed longer. We had every amenity and Carol was very helpful to make her place feel like home.

We loved kayaking to Captain Cook's Monument for the best snorkeling on the island. Kealakua Bay also has spinner dolphins. Stop by the Coffee plantation for tour and some samples as well as buy shaved ice next store. 2 Step for snorkling and City of Refuge are about 10 minutes drive. Hookena is about 20 minutes away and is a nice black sand beach. Kona is about 30 minutes away.

Excellent location to explore, snorkel, kayak, hike

  • 5 of 5
So many attractions are close at hand here. You can launch a kayak right across the street, for a paddle to Cook Monument. The snorkeling was superb near the haul-out area. The city of refuge is a few miles down the coast, and Honaunau Bay also has excellent snorkelling. The City of Arches walk along the coast has very interesting lava formations. (Wear sturdy shoes, and a hat.) Kona is close for shopping. Carol's studio is small, but comfortable, and the minimal kitchen is still adequate if you choose to cook in. We had a great time.

Thanks Carol, I liked staying at your place. Great access to the ocean. Great access to go to Captain Cook monument. Great assistance from the locals launcing the Kayak at the pier, and you can't beat the price!

The Big Island is our favorite of the Hawaiian Islands, and this place became our favorite place to stay after spending a week in the studio apartment. It's close to wonderful snorkeling at Kealakeakua Bay and a short drive away from Honaunau. The studio apartment was comfortable, clean, and well-equipped. Carol made sure we had everything we needed and spent a good deal of time answering our many questions. We really enjoyed being able to walk to lovely beaches, relaxing outdoors and hearing the surf, watching the birds and other creatures, and being surrounded by amazing plants and flowers. We've no hesitation about recommending this place and hope to return before too long ourselves.
